The therapeutic relationship is a powerful vehicle for transformation. Through developing a trusting relationship where all feelings are welcome, I teach people to trust themselves and thus live more satisfying and authentic lives. My primary theoretical approach is object relations. This implies that relationships imprinted in early life play out and can be reworked in therapy wherein the client can internalize healthier ways of interacting. I am privileged to engage in this deeply personal process with people who are motivated by their suffering to find more effective ways to relate to themselves and others.

I utilize a multidimensional approach when working with clients. At times, a combination of different psychotherapy approaches may be helpful. Treatment domains include self-esteem, anxiety, depression, self-harm and trauma. Creating a therapeutic alliance is an essential component of the therapeutic process. Establishing rapport provides grounds for meaningful engagement within all aspects of the treatment process. This type of therapy relies heavily on developing a strong relationship between client and clinician.

We all want to feel better from time to time. We get stuck, sad, scared, alone. And right now during these uncertain times, many of us are struggling. Well, there is good news! The field of psychology, through research in neuroscience, has uncovered new powerful and effective ways that really work to build our resilience, improve our lives and relationships, and help us feel more connected and alive. I want to help you experience all of that. You just need to reach out, which is hard. I promise you though, if you take that step, you will feel better.

Maybe right now you feel stuck in your life. You know you were made for “more” but what does that look like? You’re over your 9 to 5. Maybe you’re overwhelmed with what to do next. You might have an idea (or too many ideas!) of what’s next and have doubts and fears about your skills. Maybe you have imposter syndrome or are worried about what other people are going to think if you step into the dream career or dream business you REALLY want. Your big dreams of loving what you do (and who you work with) and getting paid well could feel like mission impossible right now. The good news is it’s possible.

I hope that we can approach this work with open hands. I value a client/therapist relationship that feels alive and I want you to be able to find the type of support and vibe that is right for you. I work collaboratively, creatively, and truly believe you own the work we do together. Theoretically, I am interested in Psychodynamic, Humanistic, and Depth Approaches. I enjoy the perspective of working with Systems, internally and within the cultural context in which you live. I want to offer a meaningful space for you to explore what is coming up for you in your own life and meet you with compassion, warmth, and acceptance.

Wondering if therapy is can help you? Ask yourself: Are you so sick of waking up with a thousand "WHAT IF. . ." thoughts racing through your mind? Do you just want to crawl out of your skin? Does the idea of being around others, especially people you don’t know well, fill you with dread? Do you get a knot in your stomach at the idea of making a mistake? Are you convinced that something bad is about to happen? Have people or events broken your spirit? Have you lost someone you love? Did your loved one die a terrible death? Are you feeling overwhelmed? Do you need to learn the skills to navigate your life?

Each person’s biopsychosocial make-up is unique and I believe that therapy should be tailored to fit each individual client within a safe, trusting, empathetic, nonjudgmental and collaborative relationship. My client is the expert. My job is to walk alongside my clients and to gently guide them in finding a more positive and healthier path forward toward self-compassion and self-acceptance. Life is complicated and unpredictable and we all need extra support sometimes to help us navigate life’s challenges.

A positive connection between a client and a therapist is imperative for the therapeutic process to be beneficial, which is why I value creating a strong foundation built on collaboration, warmth and empathy. My goal is to create a "brave space" where we can together explore ways of overcoming obstacles that might be holding you back from the life you want and deserve. I consider the role of culture, environment, and relationships to gain a better insight into each client's circumstances and help guide them in achieving healthy, whole and harmonious lives.

Let's work together! In these dark and complicated times, our lives and culture are more complex and stressful than ever before, often taking a toll on our relationships. This is often the motivation bringing clients to therapy because the relationship with ourselves, our loved ones, our community, and the world powerfully defines whether or not we feel safe and satisfied with our life. I'd like to help you deepen your awareness of how you relate to yourself and others and support you in navigating your world. We will work toward increasing your resiliency and making change, if that's what you need. Let me help you.

"Anything that is human is mentionable; and anything that is mentionable can be more manageable." When feelings are acknowledges and talked about, the foundation for change and self empowerment is set. Many years of experience has taught me that in order not to live in the past, it has to be properly metabolized in a safe treatment environment that I provide. Given the uniqueness of every client I use eclectic theoretical approaches to help.

I focus my work with couples, families and individuals to improve connection and satisfaction within relationships. I also work with mothers and fathers struggling with perinatal/postpartum symtpoms and parenting needs. During big life events we all need support, compassion, understanding, and sometimes guidance to return to feeling whole, connected, and allow joy back into our lives. Learning to care for yourself/partner/child and obtaining evidence based tools to improve your life is what you can gain working with me. My hope is to help you heal so you manage life's stressors and feel confident to face the world.

As a contemporary psychoanalyst who specializes in attachments, and how they evolve throughout the lifespan, my focus is on three themes, your emotional life, your relational life, and the skills you will need to make the first two work. How do I do this? Through empathy, imagination, compassion, and collaboration, and humor. I may be an expert on the process of therapy, but you are the authority on your self, as well as your thoughts and feelings on those you love or hope to love. There is one more thing: as a poet, I believe in everyone developing personal passion

You are someone who is feeling stuck, often overcome with anxiety, frustration, confusion, without a sense of direction or purpose. Perhaps your group of friends appears to be shrinking, and often you just stay at home and isolate yourself from the rest of the world. People often tell you that “you are just too sensitive.” I help highly sensitive people to better understand their personality traits so that they can see their sensitivity as something extremely useful; a beneficial gift, as opposed to something that makes their lives very small and seemingly out of control.

What type of Altadena mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.
How to find a therapist in Altadena?
When looking to find a therapist, it is certainly important to consider training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Finding a psychologist or therapist who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

How to use my insurance?
Understanding cost and insurance coverage is an important concern for many people. With some basic research and conversations with prospective therapists, you should be able to have a good understanding of the best way to afford therapy.
